Living In Texas we wouldn't normally think of having an alligator encounter but they could be more common than you think.

Alligators roam free from East Texas all way to the East Coast. Anytime there is standing water or swampy area there is a chance you could encounter an alligator.

There are somethings you can do to if you are ever in a situation with an alligator. Make as much noise as possible. If you are ever bitten by an alligator try to move your limbs as much as possible and make as much noise. Don't let the gator think it can over power you. If other are around they need to make noise as well.

If there is a fear gators around make sure to keep dogs and small children away from the water they are very similar size to their prey.  It is not likely they will attack in highly populated areas.
